Eid Escapes
Take time to wander the streets

Taipei is the city where you can grab yourself a bag of Almond Strips & Fish (or any number of other random snacks) and wander the streets marvelling at mega malls, curiosity shops, skyscrapers, street markets and the scent of stinky tofu – a local delicacy tourists can rarely stand near, let alone taste. With wonky wooden tea houses and Guinness World Record-breaking elevators sharing a postcode in this colourful capital, it’s a kaleidoscopic collision of tradition and technology that’s full of surprises (like the toilets fitted with water jets and air driers!).

andarin Oriental properties are ranked among the world’s leading hotels, so you know you’re going to get A-list luxury at Mandarin Oriental Taipei, but that won’t stop you gasping as you walk into the lobby – the ballroom-like proportions and expanse of glistening marble will amaze even the most jaded five-star travellers. The suites are equally “OMG!” with deluxe details, from the we-so-want-that dragonfly wallpaper and glam Art Deco fixtures to the walk-in wardrobes and Diptyque toiletries.
